Review Catch Up Marathon!: To Follow Her Heart by Rebecca DeMarino


Revell; 352 pages; $14.99; Amazon


I'd originally read To Follow Her Heart, book three in The Southold Chronicles, back in 2016, but like several other books, I never got around to writing the review for it. I reread the book right after I reread the second book in the series a few nights ago. I meant to have this review written & posted over the weekend, but I ended up binge watching Anne with an E on NETFLIX instead.

Set in 1664, To Follow Her Heart centers on Captain Jeremy Horton, who's ship goes down near the coast of Barbados. Everyone who knows him in Southold, Long Island, including his love Patience Terry, believes he died at sea. Unknowingly to them, Jeremy is the lone survivor of the shipwreck.

While his funeral services is being planned, Jeremy hops aboard a British warship, which has orders to attack New Amsterdam and claim it for the British Crown. Eventually, Jeremy returns to Southold, but the homecoming he had hope for doesn't exist.




Final Thoughts

When I read To Capture Her Heart (aka the second book in the series) I thought it was standalone novel, but I was wrong, as characters that appeared in it returns for final the book, To Follow Her Heart; though main focus are on different characters.

I thought the third book was better written than the previous the book. The plot is really intriguing, the characters are great, and the descriptions throughout the novel are beautiful.

Overall, To Follow Her Heart is a fitting conclusion to the series. Now, I need to read the first book in the series. (Yes, I have a bad habit of starting a series with either the second or third book.)
